Tanzania: Review of Bongoland II

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Tanzania, Film

The Star Tribune review a Swahili movie [1], Bongoland II: “The beauty of “Bongoland II” arises in its misleading simplicity. Although it could be said that the film tracks Juma's adaptation, it uses larger issues to highlight the ways in which Juma is not – and may never be – fully readjusted. From family secrets to workplace drama, reconnecting with friends to waiting for his girlfriend, it becomes clear that Juma might not fully reclaim who he once was.”
